In the “you have got to be kidding me you idiot” category, we are now being told that Kevin Vickers, a 58-year-old man with a stunning comb-over, who’s never shot anyone in his life, jumped through the air firing his weapon as he flew sideways and killed the suspect, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, in a dramatic John Woo type Gun-Fu move. And unfortunately, I’m not kidding. As Di$info Jone$ is prone to say “we have the documents”
“The focus of gun fu is both style and the usage of firearms in ways that they were not designed to be used. Shooting a gun from each hand (usually paired with jumping to the side at the same time)…” Wiki
The move is such a horribly stupid cliche, it’s used as a joke in modern films. It was originated by director John Woo. People jumping sideways, flying through the air, firing their gun(s) and always hitting the target. It’s stupid in a film and even dumber when you report it as fact on the news. Yet, here is this idiot Evan Solomon, reporting this crap as fact on CBC’s nightly newscast complete with making a gun out of his fingers and leaning over to show how Vickers pulled the Gun-Fu move.
